Yet another proof of just how essential Esa "Espe" Mikkonen was to the early Viola-sound. The bass-riff here doesn't just support the song - it IS the song.

Some pretty cool mountaintop guitars going on in this track as well. Thanks to Neil Hannon from Divine Comedy for the inspiration for the multiple vocal tracks in the end. We actually started calling this multi-layered vocal-arrangement technique as "Hannons" at some point. "Should we put some Hannons on this?", "Of course we should!", "Right!"

You can never have too much Hannons.

Lyrics

forever is over too fast
and always will never last
so pull me out from your schemes
words sever us so painfully
however hard we choose to do without
all flows back tomorrow
all the tears we've swallowed

true love can fade away
ever so gently
yet real hurt is as far from this
as tears from the rain

you pierced me through and through
I was already yours (how true)
our kingdom was a jewel
in the bottom of an ocean

true love can fade away
ever so gently
yet real hurt is as far from this
as tears from the rain

you said "we were so close"
so terribly close
that there was nothing between us, no

true love can fade away
ever so gently
yet real hurt is as far from this
as tears from the rain

always never lasts
always never lasts
always never lasts
but never might be someday
